LIGHT filled the sky and wowed the crowds on Saturday evening as Knockhill Racing Circuit brought the curtain down on 2023 in spectacular style.

After a year of action-packed events, the last of them drew thousands more to its iconic venue to enjoy its annual live action and fireworks spectacular.

Sold-out for a third year in a row - including three lucky winners, thanks to a ticket competition run by the Press in conjunction with Knockhill - the event provided a day of entertainment on and off the track.

Car displays, demonstrations and even tours of the track on a bus were on offer for those attending, in addition to special promotions, a kids' funfair and a variety of food outlets and merchandise stalls.

A bonfire and fireworks display, which was co-ordinated by the Edinburgh 21CC Fireworks Company, was the star of the show, however, and provided a stunning conclusion to a busy year at Scotland's national motorsport centre.

Stuart Gray, director of events at Knockhill, said: "It was excellent and a great weekend.

"We've had great feedback; probably about 3,000 comments and likes across our social media, which is exceptional.

"It was a great way to end the year."
